Arne BS: nitrogen filled tires; worthwhile? (43) RE: BS: nitrogen filled tires; worthwhile? 09 Jun 06



I wonder if even helium, or hydrogen, when pressurized enough for tires would result in any weight reduction?

Nitrogen wouldn't.


At same pressure and temperature, helium weighs less. Think about it.

And helium is a better conductor of heat, FWIW, but I doubt that makes any significant difference, performance-wise, plus it leaks out more quickly.

Cheers,
